Information  at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Shilajit, is an oily, tar-like mineral wax. It is mainly found in the Himalayas. It is similar to other stone oils such as asphaltum, mumijo
  • Shilajit is an exudate from rock layers in high altitude zones of mountain ranges. It is formed by organic and plant compounds that have been compressed by layers of rock. As a result of high temperatures and pressure, the compounds can change into shilajit
  • Although used in cosmetics and food supplements by a significant number of companies, shilajit’s regulatory status remains somewhat unclear. Because of this, and the low quantities available to the European market, the product remains a niche product
  • Shilajit contains a wide range of minerals at varying content levels. The main ones are calcium, potassium and magnesium.
  • The most important quality determinant for both unprocessed and standardised shilajit is the content of fulvic acids, with a higher content of such acids resulting in a higher quality product.
  • In Europe, shilajit is most commonly sold as a food supplement. The European market for the product is quite small. Standardised shilajit extract is the most common form of shilajit commercialised in Europe, with a much smaller share for the raw material - mostly to herbal practitioners
  • Food supplements containing shilajit are both produced by European companies and by manufacturers in origin countries, such as India. When sourcing from Indian producers, European buyers often import shilajit as a final product from Indian manufacturers, which is then sold on the European market
  • Nepal exported 5 tonnes of natural bitumen to the EU in 2013. With regard to other possible sources of shilajit/mumijo, only Georgia (48 tonnes), India (7 tonnes), Turkmenistan (122 tonnes) and Iran (148 tonnes) reported exports to the EU.
  • India exported shilajit powder worth USD 1.2 millions with total quantity of 21 tons. United States is the largest buyer of shilajit powder followed by United Kingdom and Germany
